OnePlus Mini or OnePlus Mi Band rival launching October 12th? What do you think

OnePlus fans in India will get to witness ‘The Next Big Step’ for OnePlus in India on 12th October, so will this be the release of a OnePlus Mini or a new fitness band?

In a previous interview, OnePlus India General Manager Vikas Agarwal, had confirmed the existence of a budget OnePlus phone and how it will be made to specifically target users in India. Over in China there are murmurs on Weibo of a new OnePlus X device, a phone boasting a 5-inch display, Mediatek Helio X10 chipset and costing just $249.

That admission seems to have been timed quite nicely as now we are looking at a new OnePlus Event in India Scheduled for the 12th October. Our knee jerk reaction is that the announcement would focus on a new low-cost smartphone, but a teaser from OnePlus on Weibo hints at something else.

    A Helio X10 powered device in India seems unlikely. Erricson haven’t ceased bristling over the MediaTek copyright infringement business yet.

      If One+ is paying for the patent, then it is good. Meizu Mx5 sells in India and so does Lenovo, Infocus, Phicomm, Coolpad without a hitch. Guess it is only Xiamoi which hasn’t patched up yet. 🙁

    The rumors about this oneplus mini are boring: they all be like “a better phone than the flagship but at lower price”… Really?! Do you really think oneplus is going to dump his partnership with qualcom and start a new one with mediatek? Do you really think that they are going to make a 5″ with a 3000+ battery when they barely did it in a 5.5” who is almost 1cm thick?!
    This talks are really boring… All hype who is going to turn into delusion once they’ll have their sd615 along with 2200-2500 mah battery and so on…

    And, to go back to the article… Oneplus’ CEO said that the other device is going to be ready for Christmas, and there is no chance in hell oneplus is going to be quicker than that, probably slower at least.
    So, yes: a oneplus band is very likely…
    Let’s wait and see if they ever are going to make a 1+mini, but I’m not expecting it for at least 2 other months, and I’m definitely not buying those B.S. made but self-proclaimed leaksters with absolutely no bases at all

    Apparently there is an “open” sale on 12 October between 12 noon to 1 PM on “Open” sale means one can buy the phone without an invite. Nothing mentioned about stocks though.
